Misgivings Weekend: The New Holiday
I forgot to announce it yesterday, but I think we should all make it official.
I noticed a number of people are spending the weekend doing something related to Halloween: having monster movie marathons, making props for their displays, getting zombie make-up ready.
I commented on this to a friend online, and we've agreed there needs to be a weekend holiday before Halloween that officially trumpets the start of the season. It would be to Halloween what Thanksgiving is to Christmas.
I suggested we call it Misgivings Weekend. He's agreed, and confirmed it would always fall on the 7th Sunday before Halloween (which is today). So enjoy your Misgivings Sunday! Eat too much fall fare (be it pumpkin ale, cupcakes topped with icing that looks like brains, or candy), work on some projects, or just watch some horror movies.
